I am Christopher Hume, a conservative and Reformed Christian. I enjoy milk, honey, eggs, fat, and extra salt (Ex. 3:17; Luke 11:12; Ps. 65:11; Luke 14:34). One of my favorite Bible verses is Proverbs 14:4: “Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox.”
I graduated from Saucon Valley High School in 2005 and was converted to Christianity two years later. Within a few months of my conversion, an evangelist named Rich Stevens introduced me to biblical evangelism and reformed theology. I soon began reading anything I could by the likes of Spurgeon, Edwards, and Whitefield. Through the years, I have further developed my approach to ministry via seminary courses, personal study, discipleship, and numerous outreaches. I currently live in central Delaware with my wife and four children. My writing has occasionally been featured on Dr. Ken Gentry’s website (PostmillennialWordlview.com).
I earned the M.A. degree in Literature from Clarks Summit University (a Christian institution located in northeastern Pennsylvania). One of my favorite authors who deals with the Bible as a literary masterpiece is Leland Ryken. I also earned an M.B.A. degree (Wesley College). My undergraduate degree is in history (17th century America and WWII are my favorite periods to study). I served four years in the U.S. Air Force (2011-2015). I am currently completing a master’s degree in biblical apologetics from Baptist Bible Seminary.
Why the name Reformed Hope? Dr. Richard Pratt put it best when he wrote:
We believe that the Lordship of Christ extends to all areas of life. Christ is Lord not only of the church; He is supreme over the family, the arts and sciences, and human society at large. For this reason, we do not withdraw from the world…As the Gospel spreads, believers are to transform their cultures to the honor and glory of God…We are to fill the earth, every aspect of the earth, with the knowledge of God our creator and redeemer, and thus fulfill the mandate given to Adam and Eve so long ago. (“Our Reformed Hope,” What is Reformed About Reformed Theological Seminary)
My hope is that Christ will indeed “reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet.” As the Gospel spreads, and individuals are saved, the culture will be changed. This will only be accomplished as biblical churches, by the power of the Holy Spirit, fulfill the Great Commission, teaching all nations to observe all that King Jesus commanded. My views as a Christian Reconstructionist are summed up here.
